I was making some Ranger Cookies for my family and wanted to make myself some gluten-free ones too. By the time I started the gluten-free cookies, I realized I was out of nuts…darn!

No time to go to the store!

I decided to leave out the crispy rice cereal and nuts and add some mini chocolate chips to the coconut and oats. I love the results, so I renamed them coconut-oat and mini chip cookies.

This recipe is definitely worth sharing.
